Paula Ellis posing in the sauna by Harrison Marks and from a scan of the original negative. Paula only seems to have posed for one set of photo’s by Harrison Marks and all were on the sauna set, or it could have possibly been a real sauna, but I’m not sure? Several images of Paula were published in New Kamera No.1 (1969) and all were black and white, although I do have several colour negatives of her from the same set.
GHM had very few coloured models in his early publications, unless you count the likes of Thelma or Merle Henry and a few other models that had a Latin look to them, but not many that I would class as ebony/black? It seems he decided to rectify that in New Kamera, as we have both Paula Ellis and Virginia Jones in the same edition and fabulous they both are! Paula had a great figure with big full tits and a thick dark bush, but unfortunately she also had a very bad scar down her stomach and across her tummy button, hence the well place hand or arms across her stomach in some of her shots.
Helga Berkmann on the cover of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.26 (1969), with a different shot from this set also appearing in GI Vol.4 No.39 (1970). Normally I’d have passed this by without a second glance, but she also posed for Harrison Marks and was on my list of unknown Models. I posted this original shot of her back in 2015 from my negative collection and have several others of her as well.
Like many models back then she appeared in numerous publications such as Escort, Fiesta, Carnival, GI and more and all with various alterations to her name. The main name that appears seems to be Helga Berk/Berkmann, but she also appeared as Helga Nolan and Mara Osterman in Mayfair. The shots by GHM and in GI have her wearing a short wig, but it seems her actual hair is slightly longer and blonde.
Another unknown model named and off the list 🙂
This long blonde haired beauty is another unknown model used by Harrison Marks in several of his shoots, but as of yet I have no name for her, but did post this shot of her in the past under Unknown Model No.13.
She seems to have posed for GHM in his flat in several rooms, plus the cottage kitchen set and as in this shot on the Egyptian set. Looking at this shot and similar I would say they were stills from the GHM film ‘The Nine Ages of Nakedness’, as she appears in the background of several scene’s including “The Egyptians” and “The Future”.
Regardless of having no name she has a stunning figure on her and you get a side view of her thick lush mound and a bit more! Thanks to Ray for yet another stunning original shot from his Harrison Marks collection.
Another original Harrison Marks shot of a model named as Josie Montya, posing naked leaning back on a desk and showing off a very different style down below, almost half and half! I say named as Josie as several shots of this model appear in New Kamera No.1 (1969) under the title ‘Just Josie’ where she is referred to as Josie Montya a beautiful French student. But we all know how Harrison Marks liked to give his models made up names! Whatever her name a different view of another GHm model 🙂
This is yet another original from Ray and he’s selling a full set of 21 negatives of Josie over on eBay
Cheryl Peters on the cover of Girl Illustrated Vol.3 No.27 (1969) posing in a very nice sheer black negligee. Girl Illustrated must be one of my favourite vintage magazines outside of Harrison Marks publications. The size and quality of the publication was exceptional, which shows today as copies still look good and go for high prices when up for sale. They were also full some of my favourite 1960’s/70’s models including many that posed for GHM.
